Message from the Area 57 Director

St. Catharines packs a lot of punch for a small city – bordering beautiful Lake Ontario and the world-famous Welland Canal, sheltered by the Niagara Escarpment, graced by 1,000 acres of parks & gardens and surrounded by vineyards, and having a fascinating history dating back to Loyalist times (including serving as a station on the Underground Railroad).

Our Toastmasters clubs also pack a lot of punch – visit us and see what we’re all about! Our members are friendly & enthusiastic -- they're ready to help you achieve whatever goals you have in mind. I look forward to meeting you.
